Description: Jefferson and London: McFarland, 2011. 26cm., pbk., 214pp. illus. Summary: For generations, men have left their homes and families to defend their country while their wives, mothers and daughters remained safely at home, outwardly unaffected by war. A closer examination of the reality of war reveals that women have always been directly impacted by war. In fact, in the last few years, they have actively participated on the front lines. This book tells the story of the women who documented the impact of war on their lives through their art. It includes works by women who were professional artists and photographers, combat artists, women who documented their military experiences, and women who recorded their reactions to war through a variety of types of needlework. Taken together, these images explore the female consciousness in wartime.
